Tyson Fury thinks he has misled Deontay Wilder to accept his fight by claiming he's only in cash for money.
The rage of the challenges for the US WBC weight title this Saturday in what is only the third fight back after a 32-month spell from the ring.
The former world champion fought Sefer Seferi in a jerky return match in June and saw another mediocre opponent in Francesco Pianeta in August before accepting a fight against unbeaten Wilder.
But Fury insists that his opponent fell for his mental games this weekend.
"Bronze Candy made the biggest mistake of his life when he let me talk in this fight," Fury said.
"Wilder did not realize I chose to fight him, not the other way round. He's in a terrible shock when he sees me in the ring." I see I've already beaten him.
"I told Frank that it was the struggle I wanted above all the rest of the way, so I asked him to tell Wilder's team that he would fight a heavyweight English idiot it only came for money.
"They bite more than I can chew. I cheated on it, but they still do not know what they left off.
